Norwegian singer-songwriter Sigrid and British rock band Bring Me The Horizon joined forces for their new track “Bad Life.”
“Bad Life” Reminds us to Stay Positive
“Bad Life” is a rock ballad that, contrary to what the title suggests, is actually very empowering. The song explains that it doesn’t matter how bad one day can be, it’s just one day, not your entire life, and there is much more out there to look forward to rather than let a bad moment ruin it. The track is projected to appear in Sigrid’s forthcoming album How To Let Go, coming out on May 6.
“When the world is on your shoulders. And the weight of your own heart is too much to bear. Well I know that you’re afraid, things will always be this way. It’s just a bad day, not a bad life,” Sigrid and Bring Me The Horizon’s vocalist, Oli Sykes, sing together in the chorus.
Sigrid & Bring Me The Horizon Are The Perfect Fit
Prior to the song’s release, Sigrid shared, “I’m so excited about ‘Bad Life’ being out in the world with the Bring Me boys! We’re really proud of this one, and we hope it can bring some comfort. It might not be the most likely collab, but we’ve been fans of each other for a while and we’re so happy we could collaborate on this song. And filming the video was an amazing and crazy experience in itself!”
Sykes added about the collaboration, “Jordan & myself wrote this song in lockdown, remotely. We loved the message but it wasn’t really fitting with the brief of the record we are currently creating. When we found out Sigrid was a fan we felt like it was the perfect fit for her, although initially, I was reluctant as I felt like it was such a special record. Then Sigrid asked if I’d duet with her on the track and that sealed the deal!”
Earlier this year, Sigrid united with Griff for the power-pop anthem “Head on Fire.” Bring Me The Horizon, on the other hand, collaborated with Ed Sheeran for a new version of his hit song “Shivers,” and they’re already planning their next project. Read about it here!
